Colistin
Hello, my 11-year-old daughter daily inhales colistin aerosols delivered via an e-Flow. My MD has informed me about a dry powder form of colistin in capsules as it exists for tobramycin. I would know when the dry powder colistin will be available in France. Thanks very much for your responses.

Oral intake & Sweat Test result
Dear Sir / Ma'am, I have had the following email sent to the email part of our Helpline and I wouldered if someone knows the answer: - "Hi- This may be a strange question- Is there any information as to whether certain medications, supplements, or a diet with too much salt can cause a false positive on a CF sweat test? I appreciate your taking the time, Thank you, xxx" Kind regards, Lloyd.

Gyneco
Further to sexual relations, the spouse of a CF patient complains about burns, blushes at the level of the vulva. Have you already had this kind of complaints? Can it be due to secretions rich in salt? What can be proposed to have relieve? Thank you for your attention and answer.

Breast-feeding
Hello, I would like to know why some CF centers do not encourage the breast feeding of the CF babies and propose systematically an enriched milk, while we know the benefits of the maternal milk?

Kreon® dosage
Dear experts, I have a 4 year and 9 months-old boy diagnosed last year in October 2012 with cystic fibrosis, after he had two sweat tests, the first with the value 98 and the second 58. The sweat test was done because the child had chronic diarrhea for about a year. As a treatment we currently have 25000 Kreon® and capsules are taken at main lunches, Pulmozyme® and TOBI® because he had in March Staphylococcus aureus in the culture. Can you please tell me if a side effect of TOBI® can be diarrhea, because since he started to take TOBI® (3 weeks ago), the child has diarrhea. We need to know how to take Kreon because of the child's diarrhea, it's difficult as the child eats more a dietary food regimen than normal diet, he is not eating milk products because he is allergic to cow's milk protein and doesn’t have gluten intolerance because he was tested for celiac disease and the test was negative, stool and fecal was also negative. Now the child is 104cm tall and weighs 17kg. Thank you.

Treated with Kalydeco®. And then?
Hello, patients receiving a treatment like Kalydeco®, do they have a different life? I mean by that, do they still need to take many drugs such as Creon®, do they still do a lot of physiotherapy? Or it is case by case? Is there an increase in life expectancy, but is their life a little more pleasant? Can we hope to have a change in life for our adolescent, if one day searchers find a molecule for the rare mutations? Thank for your reply. Best regards. Mum of a 14 year-old adolescent.

cystic fibrosis
My daughter suffers from cystic fibrosis, she claims that her doctor forbids her contacts with dogs and fish. She refuses to come home. We have a dog (poodle) very clean. She will not trust us with her children under the same pretext. I think this is really an excuse to avoid us !!!

Vertex - results of a phase 2 study for patients heterozygous for F508del
Hello The Vertex company has published results regarding patients heterozygous for the F508del mutation, here is the link: http://investors.vrtx.com/releasedetail.cfm?releaseid=862727. It seems to me that patients heterozygous for the F508del mutation could have a potential treatment like the one received by patients carrying two copies of the F508del mutation. This is correct? Could they be included in clinical trials? Thank for your reply. Regards.
